- "Look, I don't know when you arrived here, but I've had two weeks of orientation and I think I know what I'm doing..."
- ―Sergeant Snopel arguing with an Imperial officer
Snopel participated in the Battle of Talus, where he made sure that Imperial forces were deployed correctly. Some time during 1 ABY, Snopel was tasked with commanding a Tie Bomber group, since the usual training officer was not available. His objective was to command the Tie Bomber group to destroy abandoned homes for training purposes. With him in the bomber command center was another Imperial officer working alongside him. As the bombers approached a cluster of homes, the officer noticed that all of the homes were marked for demolition, even occupied ones.
He pleaded with Snopel to abort the mission, but Snopel stubbornly refused. When it became clear that innocent civilians could be killed, the officer began a scuffle with Snopel. After the brief struggle, Snopel was subdued. When the officer explained to his superiors what had happened, they stationed Snopel on Tansarii Point Station. He was never to be allowed in an Imperial facility again..
